ESSX Recoil advanced or launch pole vault demo
ESSX Recoil advanced / launch pole vault DEMO set
We understand that buying a new pole or even a set of poles is quite an investment. Many factors need to be taken into account as all pole models of the different manufacturers vary quite a bit from each other in terms of how they bend, how they move and how they return back the energy. As if this was not already difficult enough, you also cannot just simply compare the Weight and Flex Numbers of the different manufacturers against each other. It’s because there is not a normal standard for measuring the stiffness of a pole. Each manufacturer does it slightly different which results into non-comparable Weight & Flex Numbers.
To help you make an informed decision before your purchase we have put together a demo set of poles which you can test during a practice session here at our ESSX EU base in Sittard/ Netherlands. If you are a coach or an athlete at a club and want to request the demo set for a test day at your location, please fill out the request form to get in touch with us.
Recently I got to jump with the ESSX demo set. I always jumped, out of habit and ignorance, with UCS (the poles I did my first jump on, which always suited me). But curious as I am, I was naturally interested in the ESSX vaulting poles. They are (much) lighter(er) than UCS, thinner and more responsive. The chance to jump with these sticks, and to feel if they fit my way of jumping, was an unique opportunity.
Normally, you have to invest first and just hope you like it. It was a fun morning with Rens' eye and passion for pole vault and a session with the fun that should go with it, and also very interesting. Because, is this a pole that might give me that extra 10cm? Indoors I would like to jump with the demo set again, this time from a longer run to make the decision. Fingers crossed, but ESSX is an welcome expansion of the pole vaulting market!
